Abstract or Summary
  • A Likert-type scale measuring attitudes toward the handicapped was developed and used to investigate intercorrelations between these attitudes and three other socio-political attitudes, namely ethnocenterism, radical-conservatism, and authoritarianism. The reliability was assessed by the split-half correlation coefficient as corrected by the Spearman-Brown prophesy formula. The construct validity was established by comparing the scale's relationship to other scales. Furthermore, it was shown that the intercorrelations between the attitudes under investigation were significant, suggesting that the negative attitudes toward the handicapped--ethnocenterism, radical-conservatism, and authoritarianism--belong to a common attitude syndrome.
